  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    I am realy stuggeling to make ui's for my softwares to give my users a nice visual experience.

    I started to learn c# and winforms some years ago and i have huge problems to make the switch to xaml.

    Now i pretty much use the pre made templates in visual studio such as the Hub App and i do small modifications.

    How do you non designers handle your ui without hiring a designer?

    Are there any place where you can buy cheap pre made ui templates i can use as a starting point?

    I also followed the course design your ux in blend but i can't say i got the hang of it with just one course.

    Are there more courses or tutorials anyone can recomend me about making ui's in blend?

    Are there any other easier tools to make nice looking xaml ui beside blend? Maybe something not as advanced as blend and more visual drag and drop?

    Any tips,tutorials,courses,websites or any other thing that you used when learning to make a nice xaml ui are more than welcome.
